VIDEO: Football Outsiders assesses Vikings

What does Teddy Bridgewater’s strong start to last season indicate about his second season for the Minnesota Vikings?

The Teddy Bridgewater accolades continue to get thrown around, but were his final five weeks of 2014 an indication that he should break through even more in his second season?

Last year, Bridgewater had the third-highest completion percentage by a rookie QB in NFL history and the seventh-highest passer rating by a rookie quarterback. He also engineered four comeback wins and went 6-6 as a starter.

Vikings coaches like to talk about how much improvement Bridgewater made in the final five games of the season, when he threw eight touchdowns, five interceptions and had two games with a passer rating above 110, but is that an indicator of bigger things to come based on NFL history?
